DOT Conspicuity Tape - Straight Truck

DOT regs (393.11) state that straight trucks are NOT required to have the same rear door markings as trailers.
However, Landstar does want/require the top, rear doors to have the "L" markings.
According to Compliance, they want uniformity with the fleet.

Be safe

There is a proposed rule making to change this law.

It's a good idea to have it, whether regulation requires it or not.
